West Ham 5 Colchester United 0
ACADEMY DIRECTOR Tony Carr returned from leading a coaching course in the United States, to find that his current crop of youngsters back home are progressing very nicely.
An under-18 team made up mainly of under-17s were simply too hot for a Colchester United side, who were comprehensively beaten.
Nick Barrett, Dan-iel Subuola, Daniel Purdy, Jack Wendly and Simone Bezzicheri all found the target to see off the U's challenge, and they could have scored considerably more.
"We played very well," confirmed Carr. "You can only play as well as the opposition allow, and we dominated this game from start to finish.
"I was very happy with the result and we could have added a couple more goals at the end."
